wsgw development has ended.


wsgw is an open-source utility that gateways traffic in and out of Websockets connections, allowing HTML5 website connections to existing services. Both line-oriented (text) and binary protocols are supported.

Websockify is a project that does similar things but is more established and, at this point, more mature and feature-rich. Before messing around with wsgw, look into Websockify which may be already installed/readily available via your package management system.
